Episode 064 – Bitmap Masking
by Richard Querin
This screencast demonstrates a couple of ways that you can easily use objects in Inkscape to mask out parts of a bitmap image. This idea came from an email from David Hernandez, a viewer who pointed us to this post which demonstrated a grid masking effect using Photoshop.
Granted, I haven’t tried the Photoshop tutorial, I get the feeling that like many other (but not all) things involving the creative use of bitmaps, Inkscape can sometimes be more effective. But hey, I’m biased.
As always, I hope you find it useful – but there are no guarantees ;).
